The CE Marking and UKCA Marking Process
Both the CE Marking and UKCA Marking Processes describe the procedure for the certification of products in accordance with the specifications in their relevant geographical locations – CE Marking for the EU, UKCA for the UK.
At the end of the CE Marking process, affixing of the CE Mark indicates that all mandatory documentation is completed, such as Essential Health & Safety Requirements (EHSR’s) in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, are met. Similarly, application of the UKCA Mark indicates that the mandatory safety requirements of Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 have been met.
This one-day training course will introduce you to the issues of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 respectively, and your requirements with regards to the CE Marking and UKCA Marking of machines.
Frequently asked questions will be covered throughout the day’s course, such as:
- Which products fall under the scope of both processes?
- What are the responsibilities of machine builders (manufacturers) and machine operators (employers)?
- How do the CE Marking and UKCA Marking processes differ? Likewise, what aspects of both processes are the same?
- What are the requirements for importing into or exporting out of the UK post-Brexit?
This training course will provide answers to these questions, which arise in conjunction with the engineering, acquisition and commissioning of new and existing machinery. Furthermore, you will get an insight into the associated standards for the design and construction of machines placed on the market and operated within the EU and the UK.
Throughout the day our trainer will take you step by step through the necessary processes for both CE and UKCA Marking of machinery. Together with the experiences from the practical exercises on a 3D machine model, after the training you will be even better at assessing the status of your machines and ensuring their conformity.
